Whether you arrive in Hanoi after a long – hour flight and understand how unpleasant jet lag can be, or getting back to Hanoi after an intense trekking and the muscle tension make you feel frustrating and painful, most of the time manifests in fatigue, muscle soreness, headaches, sleeping difficulties and stomach problems. These, however, could be avoided and eliminated by having a suitable and relaxing body massage session with a professional, here are some remedies that can fit in your itinerary the most. 


This massage is a gentle type of full-body massage that’s ideal for people who:

  • Are new to Massage 
  • Have a lot of tension 
  • Are sensitive to touch
It can help release muscle knots, and it’s also a good choice for when you want to fully relax during a massage.

*The level of force goes from gentle to medium.  


Deep tissue massage uses more pressure than a the relaxing massage therapy. It’s a good option if you have chronic muscle problems, such as soreness, injury, or imbalance. It can help relieve
  • Tight muscles
  • Chronic muscle pain
  • Release anxiety.

*The level of force goes from medium to intensive.


Thai massage is best for people who want a more active form of massage and want to reduce and relieve pain and stress. Thai massage also includes deep-pressure point work to stimulate the sen, or the body’s energy pathways. 

Long considered a medical treatment in Thailand, Thai massage is sometimes referred to as “lazy man’s yoga”. It can also help improve:

  • Flexibility
  • Circulation
  • Energy levels
Thai massage works the entire body using a sequence of movements that are similar to yogic stretching. 

*The level of force goes from medium to intensive


Hot stone massage is best for people who have muscle pain and tension or who simply want to relax. This type of therapeutic massage is similar to a Swedish massage, only the massage therapist uses heated stones in lieu of or in addition to their hands. It eases muscle tension, improves blood flow, and relieves pain by using heated stones. Hot stone massage may help:

  • Ease muscle tension 
  • Improve blood flow 
  • Alleviate pain 
  • Promote relaxation
  • Relive stress 
During a hot stone massage, heated stones are placed on different areas around your whole body. Your therapist may hold a stone as they massage different parts of your body using Swedish massage techniques using gentle pressure. Sometimes cold stones are also used.

*The level of force goes from gentle to medium.


This therapy  involves less movement – although some pulling and pushing is involved – but the focus is more about targeting knots via quite a firm massage, although you can ask a therapist to alter the pressure.Focused on muscles and tendons, pressure points are targeted based on the ancient Chinese philosophies the technique is based on. In particular, one purpose is to re balance the spine’s chi – improving a person’s vital force. Therapists use a combination of their thumbs and knuckles to achieve just the right pressure and to target exactly the right spots.

*The level of force is mostly gentle
